For us a fixpoint in every Bilbao stay. We just drop in and tate the great jambon and the toritllas. Also some pintxos. All in ground floor (we were not yet in the restaurant, just in the bar). Also nice wines per glass.

The food and wine were very good. Local produce and superb fish. The service was good despite the language barrier ion both sides. Traditional decor and very good value.

Excellent pintxos, good prices, very good interior and service. I was there 3 times and it was always very crowded. I think this is real domestical bar with very good qualities for domestical people and those who feel like that.

This is a very friendly and welcoming place, which was my experience with all encountered in this city but with pretty average food at best to be honest. Food was hit and miss, such as the microwaved Spanish omelette which was cold and warm in...More
